Best of the 80s
27 April 2015 | by ZedeauxxSee all my reviews

In what was quite possibly the worst decade for movies in Hindi cinema - this is a hidden gem. Not only does it tackle the issue of mother-in-law vs daughter-in-law it is also the story of forgiveness and female empowerment. The stars of the show are Bindu who is spectacular in one of the best "iron lady" roles ever - and of course Rekha who was spellbinding and equally charming playing the relentless Shalu. The music is a weak point, although the pre-climax song "Saasu ji tune merit radar na jani" has become a cult classic. Kader Khan is at his best as subservient husband. Farukh Sheikh also restrained does well. Salman Khan in his debut is one-dimensional but saved by his good-looks. Surprisingly Rekha was not nominated for her role, although she did win that year for Khoon Bhari Maang. Watch it for the electrifying chemistry of Rekha and Bindu - and the climax which makes the film special.
